Actor Joaquin Phoenix knew he and his pal Casey Affleck were taking on a big project when they decided to make the mockumentary "I'm Still Here," but Phoenix admitted to "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli that he thought it got a little out of control.
It's been over a year since Joaquin Phoenix's bizarre appearance on the "Late Show with David Letterman" -- and the actor returned Wednesday, clean-shaven and sane, ready to apologize for his behavior.
"I mean, I think that you've interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person," Phoenix said about his now infamous interview, which turned out to be all an act for his fake documentary "I'm Still Here." "I hope I didn't offend you in any way," he added.
Remember when Joaquin Phoenix seemingly went off the rails, turning rapper, growing a beard -- and announcing to "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli that he was quitting acting?
Apparently, it was just one of Phoenix's many performances for the documentary "I'm Still Here" -- or so says his pal, actor Casey Affleck, who made his directorial debut following Phoenix as he tried to jump start his "music career."
